BRIAN AUGER, JULIE DRISCOLL AND THE TRINITY – FAR HORIZONS – THE TRINITY BOX SET (2022)

Now here is something absolutely essential in 5 x LP, 4 x CD or download, and available on BANDCAMP. We have OPEN (1967), the one with the remarkable version of Donovan’s ‘Season of the Witch’ on it; DEFINITELY WHAT (1968), the one that leads off with THE BEATLES ‘A Day in the Life’ (without Julie); the bona fide all-time classic double album STREETNOISE (1969) – it is no surprise that the selected track at the top of the Bandcamp page is ‘Tropic of Capricorn’, but there is much more, probably Julie’s best song ‘A Word About Colour’ and an audacious version of MILES DAVIS’s ‘All Blues’; and last, but not least BEFOUR (1970) (no Julie again) with two absolute classics ‘Listen Here’ and ‘Just You, Just Me’ (revisited to even better effect on the classic OBLIVION EXPRESS album “Second Wind”) and a cover of HERBIE HANCOCK’s ‘Maiden Voyage’ – and there’s not a wheel on fire anywhere!








At 80 euros/ 32 euros and 20 euros for 40 tracks it’s great value as well. The stuff that legends are made of in fact – pity about Brian’s haircut on the chosen cover though!
